I would definitely recommend booking in advance if you'd like to go here, because when we arrived at 7.45pm the couple in front, without a reservation, were told that the next available table would be at about 10pm! It's really easy to book online, and they got back to me very quickly to confirm the booking. Inside, the restaurant is... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the La Balancoire. I ordered the Indecisive Menu which gives you a selection of their favourite dishes. A great way to enjoy the different foods on offer. Would definitely come back.

Went there for dinner last Friday (had to book quite well in advance since the place is easily fully booked because it's so good!) We had an amazing time, the place is small but very typical french and charming. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. The menu is quite small, which to me is a good thing because they specialize...

During a visit to Montmartre a friend recommended dining at "La Balancoire". the greeting was warm and friendly - and my wife and I with our two adult children chose the table at the back. We went straight for the main dishes. As an American with French residency - I decided to order their cheeseburger and fries. Wow it was... More

My boyfriend and I were in Paris for a week and we went here on our last night. Everything about it was absolutely perfect. The waitress was super friendly (who ever said Parisians were rude?!) and explained every single item from the French menu in English to us. She also recommended some great wines. The food was delicious, especially the... More

The first thing I noticed when we walked into La Balancoire for dinner was the namesake ropeswing at the entrance. Unique and adorable! It looks like a larger table, but if you have a group of 5 or 6 you can probably request that table when you make your reservation. I called in the afternoon to make our reservation for... More

We visited here based on the reviews we read. We booked a table for dinner prior to going to Moulin Rouge - we we placed at a table very close to 2 other couples although we were the only ones in the restaurant. Starters were ok but uninspiring, steaks tasted good even though my wifes "well done" one was still... More

Charming, little bistro just off Rue de Abbesses. I had booked for 8pm on a Saturday night and, as it wasn't yet busy, I was given the option of choosing my own table. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and our waiter was all smiles as he took us through the menu (written on a large chalkboard) in English.... More
